Bishop Airport opens new route to Music City

FLINT, Michigan—To celebrate a new nonstop route to Nashville International Airport, Bishop International Airport is offering one-way fares on the new route for as low as $55.


A specialty, low-cost airline, Allegiant continues to grow at Bishop, last year surpassing Delta Airlines as the largest airline in Flint. It accounts for about 40 percent of Bishop Airport’s customers — largely because of its nonstop service to Florida destinations, but this Nashville route offers something new.


“Nashville is one of America’s hottest cities right now,” stated Airport Director Nino Sapone. “It’s not just an amazing and incredibly diverse live music scene, with shows of every genre being performed every night of the week. It has morphed into a great food scene with three professional sports teams, an extensive park system, world-renowned attractions, shows, tours, and nightlife for every age and type of visitor. This is a fantastic addition to the five nonstop routes Allegiant already has in the market.”


Beginning June 5, the new route, operated by Allegiant Air, will take flight twice a week offering yet another affordable travel option for Flint and its surrounding areas.


“We are thrilled to continue our growth in Flint,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue. “Nashville is a major hotspot for live music and delectable dining, and we know that area travelers will take advantage of our convenient, ultra-low-cost service to get away to this beautiful city.”


Tickets to Nashville and Allegiant’s other destinations are available online at or through a travel agent.
